Delicious Milk Chocolate Cake with Fudge Icing

An ode to the classic flavor of chocolate.


Baking, like any other craft and art form, is all about discovery and reinvention. As I spend more time in the kitchen, I have begun to experiment with many different flavors and textures created with the simplest ingredients, like when making this Brown Sugar Meatloaf or this Ice Cream Sandwich Cake. 

Every now and then, though, I want to go back to my roots and enjoy the simpler flavors I’m used to, and this delicious milk chocolate cake with a fudge icing is perfect for these moments of nostalgia. Chocolate has always been one of the most popular flavors among kids and adults alike, and there’s no saying no to a good slice of chocolate cake. Tiny Prints did a little research and found chocolate to be America’s favorite flavor, with over 50% of adults enjoying the rich, sweet treat over any other flavor, and List Dose also found chocolate to be the number one flavor among cake lovers. It’s a flavor that never disappears from the shelves and cupboards of any bakery, and with this recipe, it can appear in yours as well.
